A special Report by Bipin Sharma
The India office of Nepal based global conglomerate CG Corp Global hosted Branislav Nedimovic, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management of Serbia at a bilateral talk and industry ‘meet and greet’ at Taj Vivanta, Gurgaon on 3rd November’17. It was on the invitation of the Head of Indian operation and Director CG Corp Global, Varun Chaudhary that the Minister came to meet Indian businessmen and entrepreneurs to share Serbia’s open and investor friendly policy towards Indian businesses. Given the recent visit of Mr. Aleksander Vucic, the Honourable President of Serbia and ongoing growth between the two countries this event gains higher relevance.
Speaking on the occasion, Varun Chaudhary said, “As a group we were deeply impressed with the Serbian Government’s speed and level of professionalism and their openness to help private sector from India to invest in Serbia. CG Corp invested approx $10 million in the country and has set up their newest Wai Wai plant in Serbia which was inaugurated by His Excellency, The President of Serbia himself.”
Given the strategic location and specialty in Agro and Tourism, Serbia offers colossal opportunities. The industry event offered a good opportunity to other potential investors to interact with the Minister and his delegation for gaining a first-hand impression of Serbia and the vast investment potential.
